After impressing fans with his performances in recent months following Jeremy Clarkson’s departure in “Top Gear,” Matt LeBlanc has been spotted celebrating his victory last weekend.

On Friday, the 49-year-old actor attended the end-of-series wrap party in Soho, London with his rumored girlfriend, BBC producer Aurora Mulligan. LeBlanc has was seen holding a protective arm around Mulligan while they head into Union Club.

Reports claim that the actor has been dating the politics graduate for over a year, Daily Mail reported. It is worth noting that LeBlanc is previously married to British model Melissa McKnight.

Also, it looks like LeBlanc is strongly infatuated with Mulligan as he held a guiding hand on her back upon arriving at the venue. The couple both donned a casual outfit for the event.

It is said that the couple left the event around 2 o’clock in the morning, while their colleagues extended their part at a nearby Club 49. LeBlanc and Mulligan met each other at the set of “Top Gear,” with Mulligan producing the first new series together with actor Chris Evans.

Meanwhile, it has been a difficult time for the “Top Gear” team after falling low in ratings especially after Evans left the show. Since his departure, LeBlanc, Chris Harris and Rory Reid had taken over the show.

The BBC which celebrated their 40th anniversary this year is airing in more than 200 territories. Also, series editor Alex Renton revealed that they had more time this year to prepare compared to the previous season.

“We’ve got big, ambitious films,” he revealed as reported by Variety. “We’ve had more time to prep than we did last [season]. It’s big – the ambition is there.”

However, despite their “preparations,” their new debut series clocked in a 2.8 million viewers which is half of their 4.4 million viewers of the initial reboot last year. To date, the show only gained a relatively low rating of just 2.4 million.
